Leica DFC420 C Digital FireWire Camera

The DFC420 C is a high resolution Digital FireWire Camera with integrated Peltier cooling that allows crisp, sharp images to be created without noise, even under low illumination. The advanced 5 megapixel sensor digitizes information of the CCD chip in the camera head, leading to optimum noise suppression and highly detailed images. Exceptional picture quality and ease of use make the Leica DFC420 C a perfect choice for brightfield, darkfield and phase contrast microscopy in life science, industrial and clinical applications. The Leica DFC420 C is compatible with Leica's microscopes, stereomicroscopes and macroscopes and Leica software to form an integrated and powerful imaging system for microscopy applications. Combining the Leica DFC420 C with the new LAS modules provides a sophisticated solution for routine and research analysis.
